Buddy Program

Adjusting to life in a new country can be difficult, especially for those who have fled war and violence. That’s why we created the Buddy Program where dedicated and compassionate volunteers are matched with Ukrainians to form meaningful, supportive relationships.

What is a Buddy?

A Buddy is a central line of contact for Ukrainians, providing support as they adjust to new lives in Denmark. A Buddy relationship can cover a wide range of aspects of life like personal talks, professional advice, and tips and tricks around life in Denmark and Danish society. Together you decide when and how you spend time together. It’s all about making a positive impact on the lives of our Ukrainian friends and creating a lasting, meaningful friendship.
